Bonafide Trail Dogs

Tried and true, these two have made the cut. They can keep up with the big boys and girls on the trail. This weekend, we tested each one separately while riding our mountain bikes out near our property. Izzy the eldest went first with a group of us on Saturday and did brilliantly. She excels in climbing and scrambling. Big Papi, the youngest and biggest, did great with his Dad on Sunday. Although fast, he doesn't quite have the endurance that his sister has. Still, I'm so proud and impressed by their skills and a little embarrassed. Izzy was faster than me on a couple of climbs. I foresee many more trail rides (and runs) in the near future.
